    Default Question regarding the 250 ML Tom Ford Bottles

    I just recently purchased the 250 ML bottle, and to my surprise it is not the spray like the other bottles.

    Previously owning the 100 ML bottles, I didn't have to deal with this. I'm aware of the whole atomiser thing I could use, but I realized...

    I have to fill the atomiser every couple of weeks (since I will use it every day). But wouldn't it effect the bottle, since it is exposed to the air?

    I've been using the 100 ML bottle for one year straight, and every time I've used it, people always compliment me and the longevity literally lasts from morning to night (since I work in the hospitality industry). I thought purchasing the 250 ML vs. 100 ML would be better, since I can have it for more than two years.

    However, when I had the 100 ML bottle, the liquid was never exposed to the air. So from the day I bought it to the last squirt I sprayed, the quality was the same. But now that I have to open the 250 ML cap, it being exposed to the air every couple of weeks, wouldn't it hinder the quality of the cologne?

    And also, I want to buy another bottle... Of course I want to buy the 250 ML bottle because of better value, and because I know I will use it for more than two years since I trust Tom Ford's quality based on preference and experience, but the only thing I'm worried about is the way the bottle was created.. I am not use to having an atomiser, and I do feel like it will effect the longevity of the fragrance. So I may in the future just forfeit and purchase 250 ML bottle every 2.5 years and just buy the 100 ML bottle every year if the quality goes down because of the bottle..

    Buy a 100ml atomizer or a couple of 50ml ones and then you wont have to open the decanter very often. It will be fine after a couple of years. You dont have to seal the stopper with anything because it is lined with plastic so the seal is airtight.

    Make sure to use a pipette to transfer because TF decanters do not pour smoothly.

    Air replaces the juice you spray out.

    You're continuously introducing new air.

    But that's besides the point because even if you weren't introducing new air , the existing would be the same.
